Open your hearts to us. We have wronged no one, we have corrupted no one, we have defrauded no one.

I do not say this to condemn; for I have said before that you are in our hearts, to die together and to live together.

Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort. I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation.

For indeed, when we came to Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side. Outside were conflicts, inside were fears.

Nevertheless God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus,

and not only by his coming, but also by the consolation with which he was comforted in you, when he told us of your earnest desire, your mourning, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more.

For even if I made you sorry with my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it. For I perceive that the same epistle made you sorry, though only for a while.

Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing.

For godly sorrow produces repentance to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.

Mark 1:29-35 http://www.acrod.org?type=gospel&cal=old&date=8/24/2017 Gospel Reading
But Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once.

So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.

Now at evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed.

And the whole city was gathered together at the door.

Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
